Judge Orders Release of Gitmo Detainee Tied to 9-11
Foxnews ^ | 3/22/2010 | Staff

Posted on 03/22/2010 3:35:51 PM PDT by Red in Blue PA

WASHINGTON — A suspected Al Qaeda organizer once called "the highest value detainee" at Guantanamo Bay was ordered released by a federal judge in an order issued Monday.

Mohamedou Ould Slahi was accused in the 9/11 Commission report of helping recruit Mohammed Atta and other members of the Al Qaeda cell in Hamburg, Germany, that took part in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Military prosecutors suspected Slahi of links to other Al Qaeda operations, and considered seeking the death penalty against him while preparing possible charges in 2003 and 2004.

Did this “judge” release them to his or her neighborhood? Will the miscreant be ticketed on the next flight the judge’s family takes? What a total loser.

Per Foxnews, all info gained from him is inadmissible because they didn’t issue him pillows while getting it (my paraphrasing of course).

But that is the gist of it.

Clinton appointment..is anyone surprised?

He has done this before and is well known for his leftist leanings and tireless work for terrorists. My guess is that Obama’s justice department will not fight this or if they do for political reasons...they will not fight to win.

Another aspect of Bush’s “legacy”. There should have been immediate military tribunals followed by the hanging of illegal combatants. Instead, we get this.

We had the guts to do it in WWII, so the precedent was there.

"They were considering giving him the death penalty. Now they don't even have enough evidence to pass the test for habeas," said Nancy Hollander, an Albuquerque, N.M., attorney representing Slahi.

New Mexico connection. This lady was no doubt a former political appointee of the Richardson administration.

The terrorist’s ‘lawyer’:” Ms. Hollander was one of the lawyers representing Wen Ho Lee, a scientist accused of stealing secrets about the United States nuclear arsenal for China. She handled many of the issues relating to the suppression of evidence against him and issues relating to the Special Administrative Measures to which he was subjected. She is currently lead defense counsel in United States v. Holy Land Foundation, a multi-defendant case involving allegations of material support to the Specially Designated Terrorist Organization, Hamas.’

A personal friend of Eric Holder no doubt. She is an ACLU traitor to this country....just like Holder.

It wasn’t President Bush holding up the prosecutions of these terrorists in a military tribunal...it was the ACLU and other’s.... like Eric Holder’s old law firm.

President Bush was required by law to respond to their lawsuits and then they just kept filing one after another. Can we get off the Bush bashing please and focus on the damn communists that are taking over our country?

There are about 9 people working for Holder who defended terrorists.

Obama is closing Gitmo.

People in the field must now give Miranda rights to terrorists.

Holder is attempting to try the 9/11 terrorists in civilian court.

3 Navy SEAL’s are on trial for punching a terrorist in the nose.

And now this.

How can ANYONE believe dems are Pro-America?

Clinton appointed this judge? But how can that be. We had peace and prosperity when Clinton was president and everything was fine.

So many people actually believe that, so they thought it was OK to trust the presidency to a Dem again. Heaven help us all.

Seriously. At some point, the grown ups may have to take the steering wheel away from the kids (and it may not be peaceful).

This terrorist should get one thing on his release from prison: 230 grains.

Until The People recognize that the Power of the law does not lay in man just because they make the laws or attempt to enforce them....but the Power to make them WORK for the people resides in God's power behind them, then we will continue to see the law and courts fail to administer the justice we desire..

When God is forced out of our courts and governments, as He has been, our laws become powerless to enforce the protections over us He intended....rather they become an instrument in the power of another who protects the guilty...just as we see more and more of...and they will continue to strut their evil before us. (Pelosi's photo on Drudge shows this well)

God will not acknowledge lip service....especially when He is defied by our leadership...blatantly and unashamedly, as is now done in our courts and governance. And we will and do pay a price for supporting them.

It doesn't matter if one believes this or not...He doesn't need our approval to act or refrain from acting...But if you look at what's happening throughout our country...thru the eyes of understanding there is no way our laws can do what they are intended to do without the one who Empowers them to work...then we'll never understand the madness we are seeing playing out.

I’m convinced that we’re not going to make it to November, especially if Amnesty is passed. That’s the whole plan. They don’t care about healthcare or amnesty in the long run. They are trying to crash the system. They are trying to incite open rebellion.

Just so you know...

Once the Gitmo detainees are moved to the US, a federal judge will ORDER them to stand in civilian trials and will rule the military tribunals unconstitutional because the detainees are on US soil.
Holder will know what judge to send the case to so he can get this ruling, and Obama approves. In this way, 0 can have the best of both worlds.

“Judge Orders Release of Gitmo Detainee With Ties to 9/11 Attacks”
Monday, March 22, 2010

WASHINGTON —

SNIPPET: “Mohamedou Ould Slahi was accused in the 9/11 Commission report of helping recruit Mohammed Atta and other members of the Al Qaeda cell in Hamburg, Germany, that took part in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Military prosecutors suspected Slahi of links to other Al Qaeda operations, and considered seeking the death penalty against him while preparing possible charges in 2003 and 2004.”

SNIPPET: “Brig. Gen. John Furlow, who helped lead a Pentagon-ordered investigation into detainee abuse at Guantanamo Bay, has testified that Slahi was “the highest value detainee” at the offshore prison and “the key orchestrator of the Al Qaeda cell in Europe.””

Frustrating, isn't it? Damned if you do; damned if you don't.

There's something they're overlooking, though; I'm sure of it. It may be the patience and endurance and determination of the American people, as we repent and kneel in praise and prayer to our God, the One they blaspheme. He is truly Omniscient and Omnipotent; more than capable of delivering us from this encroaching evil, and obliterating them with one breath.

We must continue to resist and challenge this diligently, but above all else, more and more Americans must repent and seek God's blessing upon our nation and His vengeance upon our enemy.
